Lata Mangeshkar has tested positive for COVID-19 with mild symptoms and is undergoing treatment at Mumbai's Breach Candy hospital, her niece said on Tuesday.

The 92-year-old veteran was admitted to the ICU two days ago.

"She is mild COVID positive. Considering her age, doctors advised us that she should be in the ICU because she requires constant care, and we cannot take a chance. As a family, we want the best and want to ensure she has 24x7 care," Mageshkar's niece Rachna Shah told PTI.

"She will be fine. But she is going to take a while because of her age. And also, COVID-19 takes seven days," she added.

In November 2019, Mangeshkar was admitted to the same hospital after she complained of difficulty in breathing and was diagnosed with pneumonia. She was discharged after 28 days.
